They are two sworn enemies with a single obsession: a woman on the run from them both.
Scott Weiss is a private detective. John Foy is a professional killer. The woman is Julie Wyant, a hooker with the face of an angel.
Julie spent one night with Foy—a night of psychopathic cruelty that Foy called love. Desperate to get away from him, she vanished without a trace. And Foy wants her back.
There’s only one man who can find her: Weiss, the best locate operative in the business. She’s begged him not to look for her, fearing he’ll bring the killer in his wake. But Weiss can’t stay away.
Now, from a town called Paradise, through a wilderness that feels like hell, Weiss searches for Julie—and the killer follows, waiting for his chance.
They are two expert hunters matching move for move—until it ends on Damnation Street.

Great conclusion to the series of stories. Very fun, quick read, never slow or boring. I think this book has more graphic details of sex than the other books.
One bad chapter does not mean a bad book. Klavan had to give his best character his due and circumstances limited what could be done. That said, this book is terrific. Three protagonists are weaved into a good story. But it's the characters that keep my interest. Klavan is excellent as a writer and story teller.
The Weiss/Bishop novels make a great trilogy & I recommend starting with Dynamite Road, the first one. Klavan is a born raconteur and is also funny and insightful. You won't forget Weiss & Bishop, that's for sure. Or the evil Shadowman either. Lots of summer reading fun. I'm on Werewolf Cop now.
Good storyline, interesting characters, plot twists and interesting insights about life that will stay with you long after you read it. What more could you ask out of a detective story?
